Color of Change

efore me, dancing and shimmering, is change.

Tree limbs are swaying as a breeze scatters

Blue sky into white shards. Every single leaf

I see is changing, thousands of leaves,

Oak, Maple, Magnolia, Bartlett Pear,

Filling the sun speckled garden before me

Red, yellow, gold, orange, green, brown.

Each color is intense, as if

To emphasize the deepening color,

The darker, richer hue of the skin

Of our new leader, our new Commander--

The Decider who is deciding to

Offer a new garden soil

For the fallen acorns thumping

The rooftop like never before.

--Jameson, 11/5/'08
